#1 I seem to recall that the kind of chemical weapons Saddam Hussein was working with break down pretty rapidly... can anyone here talk authoritatively about that? I only just barely passed high school chemistry (ok, it was the honours course, but I had to resort to rote memorization just to get that C -- my biochem. prof. father was dumbfounded by my inability to understand the to-him obvious).

#5 Chemical weapons are usually referred to as Persistent or NonPersistent. Danger from Persistent agents last longer than 24 hours. Most nonpersistent agents break down when exposed to sunlight, or water, or even when dispersed by wind. Persistent agents may remain harmful for days, some even for weeks. What you use is based upon what you want to accomplish. If you just want to disrupt the enemy during an attack, you want to use a nonpersistent agent - you want it out of the way so it doesn't endanger your troops. If you want to deny the enemy access to a particular area for longer than just a day or so, you use a persistent agent, probably in crystaline or powder form. Chemicals are also broken down in to a half-dozen other groups - nerve agents, blister agents, blood agents, etc. Those types of descriptions are more appropriate for how the agent attacks the body, rather than how it's used.
